Six Sentence Sunday–4/29 Only Scandal Will Do

Read for A Cure Starts Here May 1!

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday!

Thanks once again to everyone for your great support each week.  I do appreciate your comments, so keep them coming.  I also look forward to visiting your sites and reading your wonderful snippets.

Today’s six is once again from Only Scandal Will Do. I know I’m teasing you mercilessly since the book’s not releasing just yet, but…well, I’m a tease!  What can I say? LOL

The masked man has purchased a woman in a brothel auction and has come to claim his prize.  His “slave” however, continues to insist there has been a mistake.  He has managed to turn the tables on the “lady” and call her virtue into question.  While evading the man’s advances, they discover a missing bit of vital information that seems turn the tide of his opinion of her.  Then, in a moment of weakness, Katarina lets down her guard and things begin to heat up. She was reveling in a scorching kiss from the stranger who is bent on taking further liberties when reality crashes back.

Dazed by the throbbing ache within her, bereft of his lips, Katarina struggled to raise her head. As if roused from a drugged sleep, she rolled onto her side and raised her head. The man, the stranger, had not only removed his cloak but was quickly unfastening his breeches. She shot upright and scrabbled wildly, trying to escape backward across the bed, but could find no purchase on the slick counterpane. The man advanced, his lips beneath the mask quirked in a wicked smile.

“And I thought you were enjoying yourself, my lady.”

My Sweet Saturday Sample and Six Sentence Sunday posts from January through April here at on my blog can catch you up to what’s going on in the story.  Be sure to come back next week for another six sentence installment on SSS.
